Third level students from Northern Ireland could have two funding options if they want to study abroad as part of their degree in future.

The Irish government has confirmed new funding to continue the EU's Erasmus programme north of the border.

But that will be in addition to a similar £100m study scheme being set up by the UK Government, which is expected to be operating by September next year.
